3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle packaged in a cardboard box. Poured into a snifter glass, appearance is clear dark ruby red with a small tan head, that reduced quickly and left no lacing. Aroma of caramel, grapes, orange peels and oak wood. Flavours of caramel, maple syrup, raisins, dried apricots, oak wood, orange peels, pine and a hint of scotch. Taste is medium heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, syrup like thick sticky texture and soft carbonation. A decent beer overall, but I think the citrusy/piney hops clash with the heavy sweetness and other flavours in the beer. This beer would have been excellent less hopped, with more maltiness and scotch like character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared at Øltorget Mathallen november 9th 2013. Dark brown body, small beige head. Aroma of vanilla, caramel malt, wood. Taste is lively, complex blend of fruit, berries, sherry, vanilla. Very enjoyable and quite easy drinking for a 14,5%, I’d have guessed about 8-9%. At the end the fruits are more present, with raisins and a sweet oaky palate, lasting bitterness with mango and orange. A very nice experience.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very nice mix. A nice colour and very pleasant taste. Doesn’t taste as strong as it should and that’s good. I’m impressed. A good combination of Belgian Tripel and TIPA. Thanks to Scotch Whiskey Barrels.
Want to have some more this kind of beer.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Deep copper, beige head.Smells of oak, bourbon, vanilla, light malts, some dark fruits too. Heavy sweet, malty, fruity, flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruits - quite elegant and excuisite. Oily smooth texture, very soft carbonation, warming; moderate bitter finish. A sipper! I have to say it’s maybe the best and most original Brewdog i’ve tried.
